We've been visiting JVD for many years, sometimes spending weeks at a time there and got to know many, many people. Uncle Wendell is a menace to people and animals alike. There was a lovely woman named Jayne who used to winter at Ivan's who moved to Anegada after he attacked her with a beer bottle one night at the campground. And a couple of years ago, he got into a confrontation with Vinny, who owns Corsairs, and beat Vinny severely with a chain. He WAS arrested for that and spent some time enjoying Her Majesty's hospitality on Tortola while he awaited trial, but nothing came of it. He was released.
We loved JVD until we got acquainted with its dark underbelly; child abuse, spousal abuse, animal abuse, rampant alcoholism and substance abuse. It's a scary place and I doubt we will ever go back Too bad.
Might be a good idea to post some of this on Trip Advisor. Maybe if it hits them a little harder in the pocketbook, some attention might be given to cleaning up the mess.
